Passengers in one of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) buses going to CMS area of Lagos on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, watched in awe as a pregnant woman was delivered of a baby boy inside the bus, turning them into emergency midwives and labour attendants.
The woman who gave her name as Afolaranmi, said she was going to a private hospital in CMS for a medical checkup, when she went into labour and gave birth to her baby and lucky for her, there were some medical workers in the bus who assisted her in the delivery at the Constain bus stop near the National Arts Theater, Iganmu.
The trader who lives with her family in Mowe, Ogun State, reportedly joined the bus at the Ketu Bus stop.
A passenger who was in the bus narrated his excitement at experiencing the birth:
“It was a very interesting experience. To my novice eye, the woman and the baby were both fine as of the time I left the bus.”
